‘HOME’

‘HOME’ DANCE FILM Directed by Sara Pizzi 

“Nobody was expecting that.

Everything looks dead, empty streets, no future, no place to be, no place to go- even our room is not anymore comfortable for us and our reflection on the mirror looks like a stranger.

But we still believe that inside us, there is a place, so tiny though, where dreams are alive with infinite roads, where the sun is shining when outside is not.

Look inside and you are going to feel home.
No matter what, no matter where.
Just come back. You are your home. ”

“誰も予期してなかった。

全て死んだように、空っぽの誰もいないストリート、未来もなく、居場所もなく、行く場所もなく―自分の部屋でさえももはや居心地が良くなくなって、鏡に映るのもなんだか知らない誰かみたいで。

でも、自分自身の中には、ある。すっっっごくちっちゃいけど、無限の道を秘めた夢たちが生きている場所、外が曇りでも太陽が光り輝いている場所。

そんな場所があるって、私たちはまだ信じてる。

中をよく見てみて。あなたのHomeがあるから。

ただ、戻ってきてみて。

あなた自身が、あなたのHomeだから。”

MESSAGE

No matter what happens, no matter how tough it is, keep being yourself, trust yourself and the path.
No matter where you are, you are your HOME. You are beautiful as you are.

Even if it seems impossible, just trust yourself and dream.
And if you keep trying to find them, you will find hope and future there.

No matter how long the tough situation continues, never give up.
As long as you have yourself, your HOME is every where, no matter what happens, no matter where you are.
Because YOU are your HOME.

どんなにつらい状況でも、ありのままの自分で、自分を信じて、その道のりを信じて。どこにいても、あなた自身があなたのHOME。あなたはそのままで、美しい。

たとえ外からみたら不可能に見えることでも、自分を信じて、自分の夢を信じて、そしてその”自分自身と夢”に気付こうとし続ければ、そこには絶対に希望があって、未来を作っていける。

どんなに辛い状況が続いても、諦めないで。
何があっても、どこにいても、自分を持っていれば、あなたのHOMEはどこにでもある。だって、あなた自身が、あなたのHOMEだから。
